The munch line starts here

On Sunday, May 2, The River City Garden, 59 North Front Street in Hudson was the site of sowing the seeds of a public garden. Operated under the governance of the Kite’s Nest youth education organization, it is used by about 35 to 40 families. The garden was launched in 2014. During the pandemic, the garden has become an outdoor classroom for Kite’s Nest. Executive Director Kaya Weidman said that as many as 200 people benefit from the produce. New plots are being created and the organization is accepting applications, prioritizing residents of the Second Ward who live in public housing and do not have access to garden space. A new teaching greenhouse currently under construction on an adjacent lot will have its grand opening in early July.
